Mg Patisserie And Cafe
Michael Gillet traveled the world, putting together an accomplished resume of Michelin-starred restaurants and luxe hotels while working alongside titans like Jose Andres and making his presence felt on the Vegas Strip as executive pastry chef for Caesars Entertainment. He's now doing his own thing with MG Patisserie, which opened next to a Starbucks last year—a ballsy move for a bakery and coffee shop, but one that regularly attracts curious new customers looking for something different. Gillet uses organic, sustainable ingredients with a heavy focus on French and Italian recipes. The cheesecake, for example, isn't as sweet as Americans might expect. The tiramisu skips the gelatin that typically allows the dessert to stand straight up, and is packaged in a jar instead. Expect to see a variety of cookies, caramels, and other candies throughout the season—all made in house. Every week brings something different, but Gillet is always behind the counter, ready to warm up one of his delicious hazelnut tarts on the spot.
